As software becomes increasingly the expression of any business, the way we build, test and deploy it can't stay the same it has been for years.

Agile and DevOps, continuous testing, Low-code and citizen development and now TuringBots are disrupting the software development lifecycle as we know it:

  • Agile has brought a new culture to development and testing, and Low-code and citizen development have opened application building with opportunities for non-programmers. Together, Low-code and Agile rocket fuel Digital.
  • AI TuringBots (as defined by Forrester), speed up the overall development, making it cheaper and better, by augmenting developers, testers and development teams.

 

Join our webinar to learn from Diego's experience and insights into how you can improve your software development lifecycle and ensure you can achieve digital acceleration.
